    My First Turkey on a Weber

    Ok folks, It's going to be an early Thanksgiving's dinner at the house tomorrow because I won't be home on the 27th so I'm going to do the turkey on the Weber P.P. for the first time. I will try to keep you all posted step by step as I am doing it. Step one: The 18 lb. Butterball turkey has been thawing for 4 days in the fridge. Click image for larger version

            @Pit Boss, that's a good thing. It's a sharp truck! It looks like something a pellet guy would drive. HUHBURN!

            Thanks Huskee, I never thought of it that way but, it is. I will probably be driving it a decade from now as they just don't make them like that anymore.
